7:04 am
promised. >> reporter: president trump highlighted one promise being fulfilled -- crackdown on the immigrants. >> we are getting bad dudes out of this country and at rate that nobody has ever seen before. and they're the bad ones. and it's military operation. >> reporter: that phrase military operation quickly contradicted by his own homeland security secretary meeting with mexican officials. >> there's no use of military forces. there will be no repeat no mass deportations. >> reporter: the white house later clarified. >> the president was using that as an adjective. it is happening with precision. >> reporter: while another campaign promise -- >> repeal and replace obamacare. >> reporter: is facing significant obstacles. john boehner said that repeal and replace is what's not going to happen. they're going to put a more conservative box around it, he said. also the president is vowing to bolster america's nuclear arsenal. >> a dream would be that no country would he

7:07 am
completely hijacked the brand of conservatism. there is nothing conservative about what he's doing. but they have bought it hook, line and sinker. >> what does what need to say? >> the question is what is he going to say? much of the same of what he has been saying. that conservatism is about protectionism and nativism the things that animated conservatism to for two generations on it. >> campaign on the trail, then candidate trump said we'll repeal and replace obamacare. then you have john boehner in orlando at the health care conference quoting on that topic, they shouldn't call it that because that's not what's going to happen. they're basically going to fix the flaws and put a more conservative box around it.
7:08 am
that's a guy who knows a thing or two about the legislative process. how hard is paul ryan's job right now? >> right, i think that john boehner lab waiting a -- has been waiting a few years to say that. you got the sense when he was speaker he wanted to say and couldn't. but there's the bind that the republicans are in right here. he says look, if you take this away, this entire program and you don't have a replacement, you own any of the failures that happen. and they haven't had a replacement in a generation. >> but premier league and replace makes a good bumper sticker. fix does not. >> it does not. but you know, we had reporting that some of the earlier talks between president obama and president trump about rebranding it, and tweaking it. so i think this has been the plan all along. >> real quickly, first ones, military operation that the president used in describing the roundup and deportation of undocumented immigrants in this country and the white house tried to walk it back. did they succeed? >> so there's a story out this morning about how the generals -- general kelly and general mattis' primary job is to do clean up and do that for
7:09 am
world. general kelly went out and said that's not the case, there will not be mass deportations, you saw general mattis earlier in the week talking about how we're not after iraq's oil. the most interesting people to me right now are the generals who seem to be doing clean-up full-time. >> quickly on the transgender issue, we saw it there, he thinks people -- president trump or -- on the campaign trail he said that people should use the bathroom they identify with. what happened with that issue? >> i think they're getting a lot of criticism on this and there's a big chunk of the country that's outraged with what the administration is doing here. i think it's worth stepping back and say when you look at the poll on it, this country is split on this. there are people who are on board with where the administration is and you look at how fast the cultural issues are changing. just five years said that president obama is against that on liberal grounds. >> good to see you. we have a
7:10 am
monday. george w. bush will be here for an exclusive live interview and to show us his new tribute to america's wounded warriors. tuesday, we're live on capitol hill. house speaker paul ryan going to join us live exclusively. we'll take you on the first of its kind live tour of the capitol. today on the hill, tuesday morning on "today." we're learning about that disturbing confrontation between an off duty l.a. police officer and teenagers. it ended when the officer opened fire and it sparked protests. miguel almaguer has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. that officer has not been named or spoken publicly. detectives believe he fired that shot into the ground but he could still criminal charges. anaheim police say this was the first physical confrontation between an off duty a.
7:11 am

7:12 am
addressing a 13-year-old kid and ultimately firing a gun. >> reporter: with police protecting one of their own, hung calendar down across from the officer's property which was damaged during a rowdy protest, neighbors are divided over what happened here. >> they kick our stuff around, they shove stuff into the trees and you confront them they're very bold. >> we're upset. no reason for the officer to respond like that. they're trained to apprehend the person in a professional way. >> reporter: this morning, the dangerous confrontation that went from a struggle to a shooting remains under investigation. but many here have seen enough. and are now drawing their own conclusions. two of the teens involved in the struggle were arrested and later released but officials say everyone involved

criminal charges. the investigation is expected to take a few weeks. matt and carson, back to you guys. >> thank you very much. important update. was know now what poison was used on the attack of the half brother of the leader. it was a highly toxic nerve agent. kelly cobiella has more. >> reporter: another twist in the story and a frightening one. the malaysian police chief says that vx nerve agent classified as a weapon of mass destruction was used in the terminal of a crowded international airport to kill kim jong. the alleged killer's washed their hands after the attack. one woman seen on surveillance video holding her hands away from her body. police say one of them was sick and
7:14 am
and that tests from the skin and eyes confirms the poison. >> it was a chemical weapon. >> reporter: vx or venomous agent x, a tasteless, odorless weapon. it's the deadliest nerve agent ever created. mere drops on the skin can kill and quickly causing convulsions, eye pain and stopping breathing. jong nam had a seizure in the ambulance and died before reaching the hospital. they're believed to have the third largest stockpile of the chemical agent and the officials are sweeping the airport for any trace of the deadly weapon. investigating how it got to the country and who might have smuggled it here. in kuala lumpur this morning, more denials. >> it's a lie. >> reporter: the north koreans deny they have been officially asked to cooperate. they say the investigation into the attack
7:15 am
brother and one time rival is flawed and still haven't acknowledged that he's dead. seven north koreans are now wanted for questioning including a senior diplomat seen at the airport the day of the attack. and t malaysians say that diplomat is now in north korean embassy in kuala lumpur, but no sign the north koreans will allow access to him and in fact the war of words between the malaysians and the embassy is heating up. this morning the malaysian foreign minister called him delusi delusional. >> it gets more and more bizarre. to the countdown of the oscars. hollywood's big night is on sunday. what can you expect? joe fryer is out there at the dolby theatre with a look ahead. joe, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carson. they have rolled out the red carpet which is currently covered by a white tarp. come sunday this will be a runway for the biggest stars. while "la la land"

7:17 am
competition from natalie portman. >> i have 18 years of my life to stand in the same spot as you. >> reporter: in the supporting categories viola davis is seeking her first oscar win for a role that brought her a tony. while ali and patel are vying for the supporting actor in a diverse list of nominees following the so white controversy. no matters who wins politics will likely take the stage sunday if recent award shows like the golden globes are any indication. >> we need the principled press to hold power to account -- to call them on the carpet for every outrage. >> reporter: "the new york times" will even debut the first ever oscars ad with the message the truth is more important than ever. a sign that with millions watching hollywood's biggest night could become its most political.

arrested but insisted she was innocent. it took months, but eventually police and prosecutors unraveled the complex computer forensics. the da delivered the stunning news. >> i'm here to announce the filing with felony complaint against angela marie diaz. >> reporter: in an already beyond strange case, this turned things up to 11. the da said angela diaz was the mastermind and sole actor in an elaborate scheme to portray herself as the victim. she had simply framed michelle hadley. >> michelle is accused of being angela who turned out to be angela pretending to be michelle pretending to be angela. >> reporter: the charges were just that convoluted. angela accused of sending herself threatening e-mails. inviting men to her own home to rape her. inflicting injuries on herself. all to put her husband's ex-girlfriend behind bars. what's most, at least for a few months authorities say
8:22 am
succeeded. >> we should mention that angela diaz has pleaded not guilty. michelle hadley is here with her attorney. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> what's it like to live through this? >> horrifying? it is like your worst nightmare coming true. >> when you're being accused of these things, of sending these threatening e-mails of then -- and then sending men to angela's house to have sex with her forcibly, you were telling the police i'm not doing this. this has nothing to do with me. did you get any sense that even for a second they believed you? >> no, i got the sense that it was quite the opposite. i got the sense they didn't want to hear my side of the story. >> there is a little extra part of this. when the relationship with your ex-fiance broke up, you did send some e-mails to him that were nasty. >> i wouldn't call them nasty, but i would say that the language that i used was more forceful than i would normally take. but the tone and the language was very different from what angela as
8:23 am
>> but if you read those e-mails as a police officer, do you think they would have led you to be a likely suspect in what was happening with diaz? >> i think that the police have a responsibility to do a true, thorough investigation regardless of what they think suspect off of something speculative. >> we reached out to the anaheim police department for comment. here's what they said. we believe our actions were appropriate based on the evidence that was known to us at the time. in addition, it was the persistent efforts of the detective who ultimately uncovered the truth that led to michelle's exoneration. how do you feel about that? >> i believe that the police had enough information available to them before they arrested me the first time. to know it wasn't me doing it. >> ironically, angela diaz although she's pleaded not guilty she's being held in the same jail where you spent three months. >> yeah. >> that's an unbelievable twist. >> yeah.
8:24 am
you know, it was very weird to watch the case from the other side now and having gone through that knowing what it's like. >> did you have any contact with her? did you have any relationship with -- >> no. >> have you ever met her? >> no, not before any of this happened. i had no idea who she was. and out of the blue i'm getting a restraining order from her. >> do you have any idea why she had this feeling towards you? >> i have my theories, but -- >> what's your theory? >> well, there was a condo issue and it's me -- it's about the condo. because otherwise, what threat am i? you know, i was out of the picture. >> michael, you have called this the ultimate identity theft. >> the perfect storm of catfishing. >> yeah. >> you filed a lawsuit. >> yes. there's a process in california, so we're in that process, yes. >> so what do you think the outcome of this will be and what's ta

8:38 am
>> exit polls show that 63% of wisconsin voters had a negative opinion of donald trump on election day, but 21% of those who viewed him unfavorably voted for him anyway. >> that's fascinating. were they hoping that trump would come through or were they voting against hillary clinton? >> the thing that he said that just struck me, struck a nerve for me was when he said that people who work with their hands was ignored for so long. >> and the perception that it was democrats that were, you know, holding them down on jobs and now they have that switch. now mr. trump was the answer. >> i guess the heartening piece for his critics is that nothing is lost on him. none of his missteps are lost on the voters. >> that's fascinating stuff. thank you. next, how to get breakfast from the likes of martha stewart and katie lee sound right about now? we'll go back down to florida
